Now that’s a rap.

Tom McFadden, performer in the video and instructor in the human biology program at Stanford University:

I’ve found that subjects like glycolysis, the citric acid cycle and the electron transport chain are some of the most feared and loathed concepts among people who’ve taken biology, mainly because some teachers emphasize memorization over concepts. Yet in reality, the way we turn “what we eat” into “what we do” is so relevant to everyone’s daily life that it ought to be inherently interesting. The video stylistically pays homage to two songs, “Hate it or Love it,” by 50 cent, and “On to the next one,” by Jay-Z. Once again, instead of bragging about stacks of cash we’re rapping about making “stacks” of ATP.”
